Surgical Errors

Your New York City and Long Island Surgery Negligence Attorneys

One of the most common causes of medical malpractice claims is surgical errors. While any surgery entails a certain amount of risk, there are certain errors that can and should be avoided by medical professionals.

If you or a loved one has been injured due to a surgical error, contact an experienced medical malpractice lawyer at RGLZ Personal Injury Law. We have a long history representing clients throughout New York in a wide range of medical malpractice claims, including surgical negligence claims. Examples of surgical negligence include:

  • Operating on the wrong body part
  • Anesthesia errors
  • Leaving instruments and equipment in patients
  • Negligent performance of surgical procedures (e.g., cutting a major artery)
  • Failure to take proper precautions before, during or after surgery
  • Other doctor, nurse or medical staff negligence

Surgical errors can occur with any type of surgery, including cataract surgery, gallbladder surgery, hernia repair, coronary artery bypass procedures, spine surgery, lumbar disk surgery, knee replacement, hip replacement, colon surgery and gastric bypass surgery.

If you have been injured as a result of a surgery, it can be difficult to know if your injuries were caused by medical negligence. Thankfully our attorneys at RGLZ have been handling some of the most difficult and high profile medical malpractice cases for decades. It would be hard to find someone in our neck of the woods with similar standards.
